Terrible Continental Tyre Ad running in UK cycling mags

Am I alone in thinking that Tony Gibb looks more like a portly pro wrestler than a pro cyclist in this photo & probably needed to be winched onto his bike like Henry VIII onto his horse. And to maintain the look he's accompanied by two court midgets aka the Downing brothers. Are they really that short or is it just the foreshortening of the photo?

i can vouch for the fact that whilst tony gibb is no rasmussen, he still has piston engines for legs. remember, he's an outstanding 6 day man too.

and yes, the downings are wee.
